Trump Tells Journalist to Remove Safety Mask, Journalist Refuses, Follows CDC Guidelines Instead

President Donald Trump told Reuters journalist Jeff Mason to take off his safety mask during a White House press conference, reports CBS News:

You’re going to have to take that off, please. You can take it off. How many feet are you away?

…Well, if you don’t take it off, you’re very muffled. So, if you would take it off, it would be a lot easier.

Mason — who is following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — refused to take off his mask:

I’ll just speak a lot louder. Is that better?

Trump sighed: “That’s better.”
